trying to get the physique to the next level! been doing tons of pullups/dips/pushups. pushups mostly to finish off the night.



i didnt mention it (& havent mentioned anything about the not-good stuff), but me and not-gf are done done as of 3 weeks ago. sux. really liked her when she wasn't lying/ghosting/acting weird af. blehh. been a weird/brutal 8 months unfortunately. will never understand it. in her words, "i reject good things". basically sums it up. looking to make this relationship stuff not an added stress, and just a cool great thing. fml.

on a good note, jordan kilganon dropped me a goat emoji, and met some really cool people & a really cool woman yesterday. yesterday was good.

Maybe consider adding some weight? Not much, 5-10 lbs of clean bulk, it would really make a positive visual impact IMHO

it's the biggest trick in the run game.. go slow to go fast. it doesn't make sense until it smacks you in the face and you're like ....... wtf?

first time squatting in a long time!

135 x 12, below parallel, heels elevated

time to really ramp it up. high freq + high volume coming.

need the high rep nation stimulus for shred/lean mass.

yo! thanks man. i read your mind.. today added a 10 lb backpack to my dips/pullups at home.

ya, def need to keep overloading now. will get a weight belt again when i need to add more.

i do pullups on a gumbo limbo tree at work too. lots of cool variations.

pc!

Oh no, i meant that maybe you should bulk, add some bodyweight , not add weight to the excerises.

oooh hah. nah. i don't like bulking.

adding weight to the exercises + bringing back squatting will def do the trick.

But if you are already very lean, so there is minimal fat to lose, while you won't put weight so also minimal (if any) muscle to build, how will you further enhance your physique?
This is not an argument to convince you, this is a sincere question.

hit 135 lb x 20 today on breathing squat. already back there. nice. can't wait until i can throw it around like a toy again ;f

need to take it slow tho. lots of farm life will stress my back/legs soo..

But if you are already very lean, so there is minimal fat to lose, while you won't put weight so also minimal (if any) muscle to build, how will you further enhance your physique?

nah im not very lean. im probably 9-10% body fat or so. very lean for me is 6-7%-ish. only there when peak dunking, 100 mi/wk running, and boxing.

i just don't like bulking. if i made these improvements with no progressive overload, just really need to add some overload (weighted dips/pullups) and adding back in heavy high rep squatting will be the major stimulus. it takes a long time to build muscle regardless, so i just like taking it slow. that same muscle will grow without a light bulk, as long as i keep the frequency. heavy bulk would def put on the most muscle but, need to stay in really good shape running-wise etc.

and i'd rather be more shredded than less shredded so, def dont want to bulk on any fat.

dno if that makes sense ;f

Makes perfect sense. I thought you were already at around 8% and i also thought physique was the only goal, so a light clean bulk of a few pounds sounded ideal. But at 10% and with top running shape in the picture, i hear you loud and clear.

havent been running last week.. been farming/squatting instead. so, was happy with my mile run on sunday!

5:47 moderate !

i think if i can get back around 5:1X by Nov 1, i'll be in good shape to get sub-5 by Dec 31.

yea exactly. sub-5 again before 2022 is the plan, with physique focus instead of running focus. but that run goal limits some mass gain options etc, need to get way more shredded ;f slower process for sure but need that performance :wowthatwasnutswtf: :ibjumping: :ibsquatting: :ibsquatting:

nice!
